Høglund launches maritime LNG and power solutions divisions

30 Aug 2018

Global marine automation and system integration specialist Høglund has launched two new divisions – Høglund Gas Solutions and Høglund Power Solutions.

The two business entities will sit alongside Høglund Marine Automation under the Høglund Marine Solutions brand – giving owners, operators and crew access to a full spectrum of automation, gas, and hybrid services.

“2020 will be the biggest shock to shipping since the switch from coal to diesel. New LNG, electric and hybrid propulsion technologies are emerging as vital solutions, but these will require a fresh approach to maritime systems engineering,” commented Børge Nogva, CEO of Høglund Marine Services.

“This is why we’re expanding our services to include Høglund Power Solutions and Høglund Gas Solutions, to augment our specialist expertise in Marine Automation and ensure we continue to deliver 100% customer satisfaction.

“We’ve been at the forefront of systems engineering in these new fields – working with leaders in the maritime battery space to design solutions that for a new generation of electric vessels, and pioneering the automation of entire new vessel segments such as the LNG bunkering vessel.”

Høglund Gas Solutions will build on Høglund’s engineering expertise and previous experience in creating Gas Handling Systems, supporting the growing market need for LNG fuel systems, including pioneering gas handling in the LNG bunker vessel segment. Focussing specifically on Fuel Gas Supply Systems and Cargo Handling Systems, Høglund Gas Solutions will provide customers with reliable, durable and easy-to-use systems, with open, accessible data.

 At the same time, Høglund Power Solutions will focus on electric and hybrid vessels, and integration of battery and electrical storage systems. Customers will be given access to sophisticated power management systems that control power flows and integrate storage to reduce emissions, improve fuel economy, and reduce downtime through adding redundancy.
